Succession

So,
I mean nothing
to you,
or so you say.
If that is so,
then why do you look
for my eyes
in every man you meet.
You scour the world
for my warmth
in the soul
of every man
you hold.
You think,
foolishly,
that because time and circumstance
brought me to you,
that they will do so again
because they owe it to you,
a man like me.
Hunt, my love.
Hunt.

You will never find me
in anyone else,
for I do not come twice
in the eternity that came before me,
nor will I
in the one to come.
